LUTHI with Spazz Cardigan

LUTHI

It’s another steamy day in Nashville and I’m hanging with Christian Luthi at his pad on the east side. We’re sharing a coffee at three in the afternoon as he begins to come-to after an evening of work and play.

Originally from Hartford, WI, his musical journey began at the age of five. However, the story really begins when he packed up everything he owned in his mini van, gave up music school in Madison, WI and headed south to Nashville. He had never stepped foot in TN and was pumped to start fresh. He went to work making cronies and “faking” Belmont.

After playing Americana for five or six years, writing with and for various artists in the city, he’s decided to pursue his long-time vision of a funk crew. “I felt like I was writing what I was writing because everyone was doing it,” he says. “I’ve always just wanted to create something that people can boogie to — something that’s timeless.”

Now, rolling with a big band including various horns and a variety of saucy vibes, he’s beginning the next part of the saga. The band is a true melting pot, no one is from the same place. LUTHI has a bit of something for everybody. It’s time for people to get down. That’s really it. So put on something weird, take off your shoes, and come on.

Spazz Cardigan

Spazz Cardigan was raised on a diet of Nsync and Michael Jackson before discovering Queen at age 10 sparked a religious determination to create and perform. Growing up outside of Louisville, he was classically trained as a piano player before teaching himself guitar, bass, and drums. He began gigging at 11, playing in a handful of punk cover bands while learning how to produce and mix music on a Tascam 4-track tape recorder.
After applying to college with no way of affording it, he opted instead to move to Nashville two days after graduating high school to pursue making music full-time. He found early footing in the city by falling in with a hip-hop collective called The Diatribe, where he incubated his production technique. He wrote and recorded his LP ‘I’ while moving couch to couch over the greater part of two years before self-releasing it in early 2017.
Spazz is a product of the Millennial post-genre landscape; a studio polymath and an electric live performer with a wide array of influences spanning Kanye West to Bjork, David Bowie to Sun Ra. His imaginative, textural pop defies simple definition and transcends genre with a uniquely accessible voice.
